I think Donna's suggestion to finish the assignment,if you can, is a good one.

I suggest that you not entertain the idea that this person's behavior is "all in your mind," or anything like that. Raj has clearly stated that your brother may very well be acting out badly.

I've been in a similar situation on more than one occasion. Egos love conflict, drama, and control over others; peace is an anathema to the ego.

I discovered that my thought in the presence of such a person can provide immediate safety. For example, I think inwardly something like, "Jesus Christ is protecting me now." Or one can substitute the phrase "the Holy Spirit," or "the Father," or whatever makes sense in the moment. Or you can simply hold the thought of someone you love and that loves you.

Even if this person is determined to act like a jerk, he will be unknowingly affected by your thought. It works.

All the best,
